For an episode that looked on the surface as weak in tasks, this was surprisingly difficult.  I liked it a lot.

I thought the RB was meh...but the Detour was interesting
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Nice to see the Detour giving the teams difficulty instead of them breezing through it.

I think they could've taken a little from each Dubai episode and combined it into one leg.

Thanks Peach.

My "cough" completely illegal copy of the episode some time isn't available until the wee hours of the morning.  But tonight.  I will have it done in 10 minutes.

pitstop , go Nick and Starr! I mean Cheyne and Meghan!

OMG my thoughts exactly! :funny: They're pulling a Nick/Starr!!! Let us open our eyes people! :meow: Complete with cool/calm/collected male & freaking out female. :funny: If they win next leg, then it's official. My taste in teams suck! :funny:

Now Canaan is forgiving. Wasn't when he wanted to throw Mika down the well.
I honestly think I would have pushed her in.

I can think of many teams on previous seasons that would've done exactly that.
*imagines Johnathan in Canaan's place*

First person that came to mind.  :lol:
I think there are lots of racers who would have pushed her (or tried to) both men and women.  Can you imagine Lori letting Bolo say he was to scared to do it?  She would throw his ass down into the water, without even using the slide.
Lori would have ripped the top part of the slide off, hit Bolo in the back and made him jump to the bottom. :lol:
It's funny because it's true.

You know it! Although I was saddened because Mika/Canaan actually had a chance to get rid of a strong team/keep 'em in had Mika sucked it up.

I can just picture Tina or Jennifer giving the death stare to their partners before body slamming them down the tube.

After rewatching this episode (and the others of this season, I have question for everyone.  What the hell does Ericka actually do?  Sure she does her individual tasks, and she did find the snow man.  But it in almost every other episode she is just letting Brian do all the work.

It's like watching pre season 6, when often the female partner of a team would let the man do the majority of everything.

And Season 5 was the Beauty Queen season too, as I recall. :funny:

Cool hat Phil

I think it is a Tilley.  I bought one for my husband.  They have an excellent sun protection level.

Gosh, last episode was great and this episode brought back old memories of me being all hyped up over the show. I can't believe Mika go onto the race despite being afriad of heights and waters.. so she's going to quit if the startling line challenge is a skydiving challenge? What the? In the previews, it looks as though Canaan was being an ass, but seriously.. for a guy who was extremely loving still to his girlfriend at the pitstop, keeping his cool and accepting her failure.. someone please give kudos to this guy and i hope Mika DO keep him by her side for life because i can't see any other guy who'll probably give in to her ways?

Love the Detour. Did anyone expected the Detour to be that tough? It brings us back to the earlier seasons where the Detour tasks were a killer! :funny:

The Roadblock was surprisingly uncool.. why row a boat in Dubai when there's so many other things to do? But the Detour fully and totally made up for it. And the waterpark was just a side attraction, because the pitstop is near it and at such a beautiful location! <3 it!

Shocked at how Ericka seemed as though she isn't contributing at all, love how the guys (Brian, Cheyne and Canaan) controlled the emotions of their girls.. it is the girls freaking out this season instead! :funny: Was also quite suprised that Meghan freaked out at the Detour. On the other hand, Sam and Dan and Maria and Tiff did so well this leg. I guess having an alliance does help in this race....

Still can't get over how Mika quitted... and disappointed that the hateful Globetrotters ain't eliminated. I thought their thrash talk to Mika at the water slide was uncalled for and rude. They could have outran them anytime even after they slide down and i just thought that it was extremely extremely rude for what they have down. They definitely went down on my list and finally after Lance and Keri, there's a team for me to hate this season still. :lol:

They're screwing with us on the departure times again.
TARAsiaFan,
These indicate a regular 12 hour pit stop, so how is that "screwing with us on departure times again"?

By the looks of things, Leg 5 wasn't a 12-hour pit stop, if you are referring to Leg 5 of course.

OH SHIT! MIKA GETS OUT OF THE SLIDE AND LETS THE GLOBE TROTTERS THROUGH!
This is not the way I saw it. The attendant had timed starting with the arrival of Herb/Nate. He had warned Mika and Canaan that after 2 minutes they would have to give up their place in the chute. Mika was doing as ordered when she got out.

TARAsiaFan, I stand corrected. It was a perfect 24 hour pit stop.

I've read a few people criticize the Globetrottes for heckling Mika at the slide, both here and elsewhere on the net.
Uh, folks, it's a race for a million dollars, not a race to see who can make the most friends.  Mika/Canaan had ample time to take their turn, they had no right to hang the other teams up.  And yes, maybe the guys could have outrun them to the pitstop if they sat back and waited for her to get the nerve to go, but they are still in a race against 5 other teams.  Those few precious minutes of patiently waiting could come back and bite them in the butt in a future leg.

I know, it's a race for a million dollars, but at least half the teams on the past 14 seasons won the race with class and poise. The globetrotters actions were pretty much uncalled for. They could have beaten Mika and Canaan anytime in a footrace. Do i need to bring up the example of Uchenna and Joyce all over again?

. . . so after two minutes, Mika did "GETS OUT OF THE SLIDE AND LETS THE GLOBE TROTTERS THROUGH!" right?
